Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!

There is a reason why this movie is not considered a "classic"...it just doesn't resonate well. There are 2 recognizable songs ("There's No Business Like Show Business" and "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better"), otherwise it sort of falls flat....continued

The Alex Theatre is a great venue for all events with easy parking (validated) across the street. Watching this old movie was an enjoyable afternoon.

Description

Betty Hutton replaced an ailing Judy Garland and made the part of Annie her own with an assist from Howard Keel (making his movie debut) as the handsome sharpshooter Frank Butler. Audiences still applaud after every musical number and the songs “Anything You Can Do”, “The Girl That I Marry”, “Got the Sun in the Morning”, “Doin’ What Comes Naturally”, and “There’s No Business Like Show Business” have become standards.

One of the finest examples of the 3-Strip Technicolor process, all theatrical prints were pulled from circulation in 1973 due to an unresolved rights dispute. Miles Kreuger, Author and President of The Institute of the American Musical will host the 8 pm screening and detail the campaign to bring this classic back to the big screen.

Walt Disney’s rambunctious Donald Duck battles his nephew’s Huey, Dewey and Louie in the big screen Technicolor cartoon Straight Shooters (1947).
